A Word Before We Get Down To The Real Talk:
-------------------------------------------
  This F.A.Q. is only for the endings. So if anybody have anything to add,
please do so. Otherwise... do not bother.

  Added the secret characters' endings in the Playstation 2 version, Spawn and
Link's endings (complete F.A.Q.)!

=======================================================

-----
Name: Ivy (Isabella Valentine)
-----

  Her oath her destiny, Ivy killed everything that stood in her way. At the end
of her bloody, infernal journey, she destroyed the loathsome, evil blade. Now,
only she and her beloved sword possessed the cursed blood. Forsaking others,
she chose a life of solitude to wither away is obscurity, accompanied only by
her sword.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Cervantes de Leon
-----

  Now with both blades of Soul Edge in his possession, the hellfire was his to
control. The long emptiness came to an end. His immortal eyes glowed ominously.
He now had everything--even Inferno was his to command. The world slowly
slipped into darkness...

=======================================================

-----
Name: Nightmare
-----

  "Resist the evil presence!" The dormant soul within him awakened. Sanity
regained, he took his sword in hand and vowed to never sleep again as he
wandered the lands. Eventually, he came upon a crevasse that ran deep into the
earth and cast the sword into its dark abyss. He then destroyed the path
leading to the chasm and became its guardian for eternity...

=======================================================

-----
Name: Voldo
-----

  In the familiar darkness, Voldo welcomed his moment of bliss. He carried the
sacred sword to the altar. His master's wish was about to be fulfilled. At the
very moment, their dearest wishes came true, and Voldo heard a familiar voice
again. He would lurk in the shadows for eternity. To protect his master, even
to this day.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Astaroth
-----

  To infuse the sword with the strength his master desired. Astaroth would pay
the ultimate price. He consumed countless soul, and sleeped in their fear,
became the sacrificial offering. No one knew the God of destruction's true
desire, but there would be no respite for Astaroth. His body fused with the
malevolent blade. Astaroth was feared as the prim reaper on battlefield for all
eternity.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Heishiro Mitsurugi
-----

  After countless battles and deadly duel, Mitsurugi finally possessed Soul
Edge, the ultimate sword. But he soon realized that the weapon was inherently
evil.

Mitsurugi: Surely this can't be the sword I've been searching!

  Mitsurugi shattered the demonic blade to pieces. Without a moment's rest,
Mitsurugi embarked on another journey to find the true Soul Edge.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Necrid
-----

  His soul yearning for repose, Necrid sought the pieces of Soul Edge. At long
last, Inferno appeared before him. A warrior's blood and his honor... long
forgotten memories and reason reawakened within him. Victorious against the
heinous Inferno, Necrid solemnly closed the opening to the void. And thus he
disappeared into that darkness, taken with him Soul Edge.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Taki
-----

Taki: Demon captured, the dead is done.

  As Taki whispered these words, the figure vanished into thin air. Having
obliterated the loathsome weapon, Taki set her sights east. A familiar
presence, bloated from devouring many souls, beckoned her. As she ran, her
unwavering gaze revealed a powerful inner purpose.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Talim
-----

  In order to restore the world to its original state, Talim returned the sword
to its rightful place. The hellfire lost its sustenance. In the blink of an
eye, it changed its form and scattered into the winds. The spiritual energies
led astray righted their course and flowed toward this place. Talim must have
sensed the change in the winds, for she looked to the sky and smiled.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Heihachi Mishima
-----

  Seeking battles, Heihachi threw himself into the vortex of chaos surrounding
the evil blade. He fought capable warriors day and night, defeating them one
after another. And in the end, Heihachi challenged the demonic sword that stood
in the very center of the fray. After defeating the best, Heihachi came to and
realized that he was back to his familiar time.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Raphael Sorel
-----

  Raphael now knew the true nature of the sword said to drive men insane. The
man vowed not to be possessed by the blade and grabbed the hit. With Soul Edge
firmly in hand, Raphael returned to the one he treasured the most. No one knows
what was spared and what was destroyed during that time...

=======================================================

-----
Name: Kilik
-----

  Kilik channeled the evil energy into the Kali-Yuga, for it absorbs all
spiritual energy, good and bad. The evil aura, thought to be limitless in its
power, gradually waned and vanished. Then Kilik disappeared--perhaps to embark
on a quest to extinguish the evil. And he would likely remain on that quest,
until the day where all sins of the past are exorcised!

=======================================================

-----
Name: Maxi
-----

  After sacrificing everything in the name of revenge, Maxi paid his respect to
his slain comrades at last. He then confronted the dark dues within his soul,
and felt the presence of his long-forgotten companions. Regaining his lost
memories, he saw who he had turned his back on. He would return to his friends
to share with them a joyous future.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Hong Yunsung
-----

Yunsung: I don't care if the sword is evil... I will protect my country with
its power!

  Thus he convinced himself through the battles, but as he reached for Soul
Edge, he stopped. Returning quickly to his home, Yunsung toiled feverishly to
protect his homeland. He no longer needed the Sword of Salvation, for he
believed in himself.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Cassandra Alexandra
-----

  Wielding weapons once dedicated to Haphaestus, Cassandra vanquished the evil.
Her sister's precious sword and shield bore the scars from countless battles.
So great was Cassandra's concern about the weapon, she forgot that she
destroyed the demonic blade. She need not worry, for surely her sister would be
over joyed with her safe return.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Chai Xianghua
-----

  Reunited with her speed sword, Xianghua became an ethereal light within the
evil aura. The malevolent entity perished, unable to sustain its existence
against such power. Her sword then fell silent--perhaps it knew it had
fulfilled its purpose. Xianghua headed home with it in hand. To put an end to
the ever-growing rumors about the evil sword, she never lie again as she
journeyed home.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Yoshimitsu
-----

  His phantom blade spoke to him, "No mercy for the evil flame, the deceiver of
souls." Yoshimitsu ground the cursed blade to dust and in time became a
benevolent bandit. His group traveled throughout the lands to help the poor.
And upon the hearts and minds of the people, his noble deeds were engraved.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Charade
-----

  It neither knew the reason nor cared why. But it had to return. And when they
found one another, it was liking finding oneself. They melded together and
formed one sword, then quietly closed its eye and slept, unknown to the world.
It sleeps even to this day, awaiting the next hand to grasp its hilt.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Sophitia Alexandra
-----

  It was not a journey ordained by another, but rather a road she chose for
herself. With the holy light guiding her blade, Sophitia cut through the
repugnant darkness. Having saved her children from the fate of the evil blade,
Sophitia's long journey came to an end. The light surrounding her revealed that
her smiling face shone with maternal love.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Seung Mina
-----

  Mina used every ounce of energy left within her and struck down the evil
blade with her Zanbatou. The Sword of Salvation she sought to save her people
turned out to be nothing but lies. The evil flames extinguished, leaving behind
a faint anguished groan. Mina knew her journey had come to an end.
Triumphantly, Mina headed home, wearing a smile that had forgotten all the
injuries.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Spawn
-----

  The Hellspawn fought his way through a long forgotten era to obtain the
coveted Soul Edge. With Malebolgla's prize in hand, Spawn sensed an evil
presence that threatened to twist and enslave him. "What do you take me for, a
fool?" Spawn whispered, as the grip of his clenched fist loosened slowly in the
swirling vortex of time and space. Spawn returned to his familiar back allies,
with nothing in his grasp.

=======================================================

-----
Name: Link
-----

  Link came to this world in order to defeat the evil that threatenened Hyrule.
After a long journey, Link finally succeeded in sealing away the terrible evil.
In doing so, he not only saved his homeland from peril, but also maintained the
tranquility of this world. Link then quietly left this world- a faint echo of
his Ocarina was all that remained.
